Its been ages..

Its been ages since I wrote properly last, I suppose i’ve been busy with exams and plans and all that, that I haven’t had any motivation to write. 

When I’m bored my mind goes off and creates all sorts of stories and things that I can’t wait to write down, but seeing as i’ve been busy my mind is busy with exams and work and school that  it hasn’t had chance to wonder off. 

But now im getting huge urges to read a really good book or write more on the one im writing at the moment, but I cant afford to get distracted with all the things I have going on so will have to blog instead, which is always fun. 

Its also hard for me to go back to the book im writing. My Nanna was always the first one to read anything I wrote.She was the first one to read ‘Away with the fairies’ and was the first one to have a copy before it was published. So I named the character in this story ‘Veronica’ to surprise her when she read this one. Yet she didn’t live to let me finish it. 😦 now I don’t like writing about a woman named Veronica when MY veronica isnt here anymore. But at the same time, I dont want to have to go back through it and change the name of the character all the way through my writing. I’ll do something when I get to it I suppose.

I’ll definitely write sometime soon though, when exams are over and my charity event has been and gone, i’ll be more than ready to fly away somewhere new.

ADVENTURE.

adventuresIt just hit me, literally as I was logging in, it hit me.
Why I wrote the book!
Whenever I was asked, it was hard to answer WHY I wrote Away with the fairies and just like that, I knew why.
EXCITEMENT!
I crave excitement in my life, and because I have little, I wrote excitement into someone elses.
No matter how stupid and pathetic it is, I am Poppy Garner. I’ve run away to Dreamland and married a prince and I’m in my own little fantasy. That’s why I wrote it. Escape from the boredom and endless routine of life.
Wake up, go to school, come home, wish I was thinner or more clever or had less spots or the energy to clean my room, do my homework and go to bed.
Parties, work, school and home aren’t exciting enough for me. They are short bursts of excitement that just aren’t enough! I want an ADVENTURE! I want to travel to new places and discover new people. I want a fairytale!
I know I sound deluded and stupid, but I’m so passionate about this! I want to be like someone out of the movies, or the books that I read.
I’m not saying I’m unhappy with my life, because I’m not, I’ve got a family, a boyfriend, amazing friends, but I don’t wake up in the morning wondering what today will bring, because I already know, boredom, forcing myself to stay awake through endless lessons and then going home and preparing to do it all again.
I’m officially counting down the days until I am old enough to travel, with anyone that wants to come along. To explore, to discover!
I know when I’m getting bored, because I have an overwhelming urge to read, or to write. Its because I want to escape into another world.
I cant remember the last time I felt my stomach churn in excitement or legs shake with nerves and heart flutter.
I want so much more than Goostrey, than England, than this!
